Cole delighted with Chelsea return

Ashley Cole was delighted to get 65 minutes under his belt in Chelsea's victory over Brondby last night.

The England left-back said: "I'm now looking forward to the season and hopefully I can start the Community Shield and get 90 minutes under my belt.

"I wasn't playing to my full potential last season, but it's [pain] free now so hopefully I can play how I know I can play. I had a lot of critics last season, and they didn't know what kind of injury I had, but that's over now and hopefully this season I can prove myself to be one of the best again."
